Cosmic Ecology: A Synergetic Perspective on the Place of Humanity in the Universe
September 14 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+0Donation
Dr. Anthony Hodgson will share a vision and a narrative of a cosmic ecology he has developed over a lifetime of research, drawing on many dimensions of the subject including science, history, spirituality and the arts.
This webinar introduces the theme of the new H3Uni Programme on Cosmic Ecology which commences on October 7th. You can book a space on Part 1 of the course here.
We increasingly discover that the Anthropocene Era is not just a scientific concept, but a stark reality of how we humans are now acting on the planet at a geological scale. We are also being acted upon by the feedback from the planetary systems, hence a terrestrial ecology is no longer sufficient to account for our predicament.
Many of us are driven to seek deeper meaning and find that the different special interests from which different authorities try to tell us what is going on, are no longer adequate. We have been holistically alerted by the image of the blue planet, but we do not have an equivalent holistic narrative of the cosmos that satisfies science and soul.
This webinar is part of H3Uni’s 2021 Webinar series, stay tuned for more webinars to come. All proceeds from this webinar will go towards funding future H3 Uni work and courses.
This webinar is hosted on Zoom, and the session will be recorded. All attendees will get access to the recording after the event has ended. We recommend participating with a high resolution screen so you can view it when the host shares his screen. Participation by mobile phone is not recommended.
About the host:
Anthony graduated in chemistry from Imperial College in 1958. After a short period of research he then qualified with a PGCE from the London University Institute of Education. His interest in cosmology, both scientific and traditional, led him to spend ten years with J.G. Bennett at his Institute for the Comparative Study of History, Philosophy and the Sciences at Coombe Springs. This was the period when Bennett was completing Volumes 3 and 4 of his magnum opus, the Dramatic Universe.
After the death of Bennett and some further experiments in education with some of his followers, Anthony pursued a career as a freelance consultant combining facilitation with strategic thinking and scenario planning methods. In parallel he studied different spiritual traditions under a master who was seeking out the unity of spiritual development regardless of cultural and ethnic tradition. This period included pilgrimages to India, Egypt and Turkey.
On retiring from consulting activity Anthony helped the formation of The International Futures Forum, completed a doctorate in systems science and founded with colleagues H3Uni – a university for the third horizon. This course is the basis of a personal challenge that Bennett left with him to carry out a synthesis of the spiritual and the scientific that built on his work.
